3. Relevance ¶
This article is relevant for March 2018. In the future, the data in this article may be obsolete.
4. Limitations ¶
- Works for PC, not for mobile devices.
That use typo-reporter on your site you need to have:
- Google account.
5. Comparison ¶
I use typo-reporter, not Orphus or another alternatives, because typo-reporter:
- Open source,
- Active maintained (jquery.textmistake project closed)
- Have technical support (Orphus community spammed),
- Support CDN — you need paste to your web page
<script src="https://npmcdn.com/typo-reporter/lib/TypoReporter.min.js"></script>(CDN vs. local files).
6. Getting formId ¶
Create your spreadsheet → Form → Edit form → Send → click to link icon → copy link below:
copy symbols between /e/ and /viewform — that's what it is your formId.
- your link — https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfu5tnuHYKNPjH0n1fR9EmWDHwlFESzJj7JQFu_O5IS8G5R2A/viewform?usp=sf_link,
- your formId — 1FAIpQLSfu5tnuHYKNPjH0n1fR9EmWDHwlFESzJj7JQFu_O5IS8G5R2A.
7. Mail forwarding ¶
I don't use GMail, because GMail move to Spam non-spam messages more often than another mail services (example). But “notifications are only sent to the email address associated with your Google account”. That solve this problem I use mail forwarding.
In your GMail create a filter with parameters:
- From — firstname.lastname@example.org;
- Has the words — name of your spreadsheet;
- Forward it to: — your forwarding e-mail;
- check Never Send it to Spam.
7.1. Check mail forwarding ¶
After filter creating I recommend to make sure, that:
- typo reports forwarded,
- another e-mail messages not forwarded.
|Send||Expected behavior for your forwarding e-mail|
|Example typo report on your site||Get similar message|
|Any another message from another e-mail to your GMail mail||Don't get any message|
